After the traditional ribbon cutting ceremony, which included a
few congratulatory words from Mayor Ray Martinez, the doors to the
brand new restaurant and bar, Mystiq, were opened to the eager
The grand opening took place last Friday night and offered a
sneak peak into what promises to be one of the more chic
restaurants in Fort Collins. Mystiq is located at 23 Old Town
Square and shares its owners and space with Suite 152.
Once inside, one can’t help but notice the drastic metamorphosis
in ambiance from the popular dance club, to upscale, classy
restaurant featuring an elaborate and comforting d�cor.
Big city atmosphere combines with small town courtesy to make
Mystiq an excellent destination for someone looking to impress a
date. Candles and color-changing lights illuminate the interior

Several sections of the restaurant are separated by walls and
drapery to create isolated pockets for conversation and

private booths, champagne and pampered treatment.
“We offer an exceptional VIP package including personal servers,
champagne and strawberries,” said Chuck Jonz, co-owner of Mystiq.
“We made it a point to include special seating sections … both
upstairs and downstairs.”
Along with this customer-friendly architecture, Mystiq offers a
diverse cuisine and drink selection, including an impressive

with other prices around town.
The owners of Mystiq expect to receive a large customer turnout
among patrons aged 25 to 40, due to the atmosphere and price range.
Many college-aged customers are also expected to utilize the
restaurant/bar as an impressive date spot and as a place to have a
drink before going dancing during the evenings.
